with the new revelations on the deadly attack in libya. >> the attack that killed chris stevens and three other americans. >> the u.s. intelligence community now says it was a deliberate terrorist assault. cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has more. >> this is really the fullest account aing yet on behalf of the community which rarely venchers to the public domain to issue what they knew. the intelligence community says this was a deliberate and terrorized result sympathetic to al qaeda. that comes from se s from shawn. the reason we're seeing something like this two plus weeks after the attack, there is growing frustration within the inteigence community itself how information is being used. that initial assessment being this was a protest, a spontaneous attack that grew out of a protest in response to the anti-muslim films. it appears that as more information came in, that picture changed. the story from administration officials didn't change so dramatically and i think that really shows us that there are still unanswered questions. we don't have a direct timeline on when administr
christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attacking which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people we condemn. likewi likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech. this is the weakness and the abuse of freedom. and in many places it is a crime. it shouldn't take place, and i do hope that they will come in which politicians will not seek to offend those whom otherses hold holy or stainwith sanctiti. but we also believe that this must also be resolved in a humane atmosphere, in a participate o'environmeaer envi we do not like anybody losing their lives or being killed in wri. >> there are protesters all over the middle east now threatening the staff of american embassies, tlentding to kill them, behead them. do you think they should stop? >> translator: you see, i cannot determine what people or nations should do, but
braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad
clearly in libya. there were the extremists who killed chris stevens, an appalling murder of somebody who had actually done his best for the libyan people. but then you then have thousands on the street protesting against his killers and demanding action be taken. so i think the more i look at the world today, i think in a way a more relevant struggle to a lot of countries than what i would call traditional left versus right politics is the open minded versus the closed minded. and the open minded see globalizations as an opportunity. they want an open society, an open economy, a society where you tolerate and respect people, a different faiths and cultures and then the closed minded who really have a view that if you don't accept my view then are you an alien or an enemy. i think that is the battle that is going on and in the end, i think it's important always, and i always say this to people in america to realize-- realize that for all the pictures of extremist that you see in people burning the american flag and protesting and so on, you also then have a lot of people who wanted same t
